This program will focus on the historical and applied aspects of microbiology and molecular biology. Students will visit London, Cambridge, Oxford, Amsterdam, Delft, and Paris as part of the study abroad. Visits to museums will be highlighted with presentations that the general public do not get to see, including disease diagnosis using London plague pit skeletons, Fleming’s lab where penicillin was discovered, Pasteur’s laboratory and crypt, and microscopes made by van Leeuwenhoek and Darwin! We will make bread at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and gouda cheese in Gouda (and eat them, too!) The program will end in Paris. This program will be most appealing to students that are passionate about microbiology and molecular biology, who are interested in medicine, and in how these disciplines are applied and used in daily living.
